D800 Quick Change Between Focus Points?
Mar 26, 2012

Switching from a Canon 7D to D800E(6am preorder at Amazon. My 50mm 1.8G is arriving Tuesday)- and one autofocus feature that was invaluable was the ability to switch between two single spot focus points: one selectable with the main shutter button and the other with the AF button the back. Also it would be orientation sensitive. This really helped at events with fast moving action.

I've gone through the manual for the D800 but can't find something like this, except pressing reset to bring focus point back to the center. Or are their different focusing strategies?
